Re: Audio/Video on a mac.

I've always thought one reason people in graphics design prefer working with Mac OS to Windows is the way the interface handles windows. When working with many images, the way windows 'float'...

Re: New Earth Like Planet..

The fact that space is infinite? Not quite. Space doesn't have to be infinite. Actually, most of what we know points to the contrary.

Anyway, these findings are fascinating, even if we can't...

Re: Someone tell me what this is....

I once responded to one of these a few years ago to see what would happen. I first tried to act skeptical, they didn't seem to get it, the responses just became more nonsensical (I guess they didn't...

Re: MAC's are just as vulnerable as any just takes money

Now, you'll never hear me claim that Mac OS or Linux can't be hacked, but in a way, this...

Re: Firewire VS USB

False, false, and I'm not sure about the last point, so I can't comment there.

FireWire, first thing, is a standard. It's technical name is IEEE1394, and it wasn't a Sony creation, it was...

Re: Electric Universe

I'm calling bull. It changes nothing we know about the universe because it's wrong. I have no time to watch the entire video, but I read some of the synopsis on their site...

Re: Mac Users Numbers Declining?

Nope. These things fluctuate. Besides, data from websites is hardly what you could call accurate. 0.3% is easily less than the margin of error here. But even on the assumption of it being accurate, I...

Re: 300

Right. Basic historical context. Plenty of fiction in there though. The Persians didn't exactly have any access to strange monsters. Spartan society was pretty idealized in the film as well, which is...

Re: Technology related pranks

No problem. I take no responsibility for damage caused. ;)

Re: Software piracy: Pros and cons

Well, that's not strictly true. There are plenty of artists who haven't "made it big". On the other hand, the recording industry seems screw many of them over regardless of piracy, so I'm not sure if...

Re: What Linux distro do you use?

I've been a Gentoo user for a couple years now. It runs very well and I like Portage.

On the other hand, if I had to do it again, I'd probably choose something else, because I wouldn't really want...

Wow, thanks everyone! :cool:

I did indeed have a cake, though without the angular pink frosting. Getting the cookie is, on the other hand, a work in progress.

Re: Technology related pranks

Most people use word processors (not me!), and most modern word processors have some sort of auto-correct feature. What you can have fun with, is the fact that almost all of these auto-correct...

Re: Microsoft introduces JPEG replacement

Of course, JPEG's successor has been around for longer, but has never been implimented in the major browsers and thus never gained any momentum. Then again, HD Photo has yet to be implimented. Since...

It doesn't create an endless supply of energy simply because it requires, as you said yourself, an input if electrical energy to maintain.
